- He's Back!!! The World's Most Evil Man with a Fiendish Plan of Conquest
- Dr. Petrie: It's hot in here. Inspector Ahmet: Then take your clothes off. Dr. Petrie: A gentleman never takes his clothes off in public!
Lin Tang: Even Nayland-Smith cannot touch you now, father. Fu Manchu: I wish that he would try.
Denis Nayland-Smith: Ah, Petrie. Dr. Petrie: I'm an idiot, an imbecile and an incompetent dolt. Denis Nayland-Smith: Did you come all the way to Scotland Yard to tell me that? Dr. Petrie: I'm terribly excited but I just found it. It's been on my own bookshelf all these years. Denis Nayland-Smith: [reading] Professor A. G. Heracles. Dr. Petrie: The world's top authority. Denis Nayland-Smith: Well, I dare say, Petrie, buy would you explain why this book of yours has suddenly become so important? Dr. Petrie: Because, his theory may give us the clue that we are desperately searching for. Well, you see, he has a theory, that when the chemical properties of ordinary water are such that they lend themselves to transformation and... tampered with... and he goes on to say here... somewhere... yes, here we are: "water, enriched with a crystallized essence, prepared by the methods which are not as yet practicable to man, might dramatically change its temperature to a cold so intense as to be uncontrollable." There, now, provided that you've got sufficient quantity of water the pressure will build up, which will eventually, with the crystals, become, as he says, uncontrollable! Denis Nayland-Smith: But these crystals of which he writes, what would they be composed of? Dr. Petrie: Possibly a derivative of opium.
Fu Manchu: The entrance to eternity. Beyond that door there is a tunnel which leads directly to the sea. Cisterns of water are poised above it. The touch of a lever will release hundreds of thousands of gallons of water into that tunnel, and combined with professor Heracles' crystals this can transform the entire sea into one gigantic block of ice.
Omar Pascha: I am Omar Pascha. Denis Nayland-Smith: And I am Nayland-Smith of Scotland Yard. Omar Pascha: I thought I could smell a policeman.
- All of the footage at the beginning of the movie featuring a large ocean liner striking an iceberg and sinking is all stock footage from the famed 1958, British Titanic film, A Night to Remember (1958).
The last feature of Howard Marion-Crawford
The dam bursting scene is footage taken from the Dirk Bogarde film Campbell's Kingdom (1957). Bogarde is in the green checked shirt and Stanley Baker in the red shirt, both are recognizable in this footage.
